Flyers alumni roster announced
94.1 WIP announced the Flyers alumni roster today.
Thanks to tweets from beat writers, we were able to composite the full list the Flyers alumnis participating in the game on New Year's Eve at Citizens Bank Park.
Head Coach: Pat Quinn
Assistant Coaches: Mike Nykoluk, Keith Primeau
For a complete look at the stats and years played for the Flyers Alumni team, check out Dan MacNeal's post on Crimespree Hockey.
The Flyers goalies have played a combined 40 games in orange and black for their careers. Unfortunately, none of the main starters from the revolving door between Ron Hextall (including him) and Ilya Bryzgalov were available.
As it was known about a month ago, Eric Lindros and John LeClair were reuniting as well as the LCB line (Reggie Leach, Bobby Clarke and Bill Barber).
Some other great notables are the reunion of Eric Desjardins and Chris Therien, Derian Hatcher and Jeremy Roenick back in orange and the presence of Mark Howe, who was recently inducted into the hall of fame was well as a rumored number retiring.
Some notables not playing include Keith Jones, Bernie Parent and the other third of the Legion of Doom, Mikael Renberg.
